I am firmly convinced that the benefits of juicing are the keys to giving you energetic life and truly optimal health. Virtually every health authority recommends that we get 6-8 servings of vegetables and fruits per day and very few of us actually get that (are you with me?). Juicing is an easy way to virtually guarantee that you will reach your daily target for vegetables.
Have you ever planned on making a salad but didn`t have the time in the end to make it? I am also sure that there is some vegetables that you don`t like it in your salad but I am sure that you won`t taste it in your juice. Trust me juicing is truly an amazing way to enjoy vegetables!
Here is my suggestion for today`s “salad” a.k.a juice!
Makes two glasses
- 1 cup of pineapple
- 2 cups of kale
- 2 cups of spinach
- 3 broccoli florets
- 1 small cucumber
- 2 stalks celery
- 1 smaller fennel bulb
- 1 lemon
- 1 lime
- 1 thumb size of ginger
Juice all of the ingredients together. Sip and enjoy!
I encourage you to listen to your body. This is partly because you should only start by juicing vegetables that you enjoy eating non-juiced. The juice should taste pleasant — not make you feel nauseous.
It is very important to listen to your body when juicing. Your stomach should feel good all morning long. If it is churning or growling or generally making its presence known, you probably juiced something you should not be eating.
